Red face Hey from Chicago

Hey peeps! I'm Luke currently from the city of Chicago. A native Texan by birth, an headed back to Htown real soon. I'm a resident physician here in town, and will be specializing in Anesthesia. I love cigars, and have been an active member on a bunch of cigar forums for a few years. I just started getting into different spirits, and I have found that I tremendously enjoy rum, so I figured I'd start here and see what I can learn. Anyway, looking forward to getting to know some of you all, and learning what I can. Cheers!

Welcome to the forums benzopyrene, hope you've got some good rum at home because you won't be going out to the store tomorrow. Looks like the biggest snow yet to coming tonight to the Windy City.

Enjoy the rum and cigars, I'm confident you'll discover some new favorite combinations here.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
